, that the religion is what it is, and you live by the rules because that's what the faith is about. what is faith? what is the church? what should be the right rules? and maybe the expedience of the moments, if we just adjust to the times, you se some sense of what the faith is at its core. that's certainly the orthodox position. on the other hand, you've got lots of catholics from my generation who want to see it be more exclusive and sclus inclus inviting, and would want that from the pope. >> especially when it comes to birth control. mary ann walsh sort of pooh-poohed that, but it is very important to catholic women. almost 90% of catholic women have taken birth control at some point in their lives. >> and there are no women priests or women in positions of power, not to denegrate in any way the nuns and the amazing influence they had on many lives, including mine as a catholic student. but this pope himself, very interesting, called the rottweiler of god, so strict to orthodoxy, he got into a point of confusion, right, because when he was talking about africa, the first time that they talked
? privately and romantically and joyfully? >> but food is the basis of a lot of ethnic 'tisty and religion. we have a saying here on friday and it goes back to southern baptist churches. when the service is almost over, it's on with chicken. >> it's on with chicken. >> leaving on sunday, you are going to go eat gran ma's home fried chicken >> i want to giver people a religious experience of food. the word religion means from a latin verb to bind together, to hold everything together. >>> i'm a religious ravens fan. if people have a religious experience of food, especially couples, i'm not talking about denomination. i'm talking about an experience that binds them together and food is a great vehicle for that. . we'll take it to a break. sheer's sharon in traffic control. join us as cbs baltimore. com. "spicing up married life" okay, i need a better pizza. one made with only real cheese. a pizza my family will love. (announcer) freschetta naturally rising crust pizza. freschetta. made better to taste better. >>> 5 1/2 before 7:00. >> >> let's go to
. but on other hand he's been a blessing. he reminds world reason always needs to be applied to religion and you can never take up the sword or the bomb in our modern world in the name of religion. both of those come from his scholarship. >> here in the bay area issues that we often associate with the catholic church and the catholics discuss gay marriage, women in the priesthood, child abuse by the clergy are sort of preeminent. do you think that is going to be reflected in this conclave or what are their priorities? >> certainly all those things. as i said, when they get together to talk about what are the pressing issues, all of those things are going to ob their minds. there's a clear direction forward for greater transparency, complete transparency in the church working with the state, with respect to sexual abuse in the church. for those other issues, those changes in the order, in social -- [indiscernible] -- church leadership is a spokesperson for the rest of the church. they listen for the sense of the faithful and they make no major changes
books about the revenge of god, that religion is making a comeback as a political player. two-thirds of the 1.2 billion catholics in the world today live outside the west, and most live in societies where religion is critically important, so, yeah, i would say there's still some gas left in the church's political gas tank. >> john, real quickly, only a couple of seconds left here, but what do you know specifically in regards to what they are looking for for a pope? stances on abortion, same-sex marriage, that kind of thing. >> reporter: well, all these cardinals have been appointed by john paul and benedict so they are all in agreement on the main. of course they are looking for a hole guy but three things quickly, one, somebody with a global vision, two, somebody who is a missionary, who can take the church's message to the street and, three, somebody who can fix the perceived internal governance problems in the vatican itself. you roll all that up, you probably have a pope. >> john allen, so good to get your insight. thank you so much for being with us today. >> sure. >> and
. another issue is how to have dialogue, with religions, the great rise of islam. how are we going to truly dialogue with these religions, in order to reach a truth, the truth, which we believe as roman catholics. and i think a third issue is, many of the problems that the world faces, the church too needs to tackle. for example, beginning of life issues, end of life issues. how do we deal with marriage? how do we deal with the sanctity of marriage. how do we deal with moral issues. how do we deal with the economic crisis? that's what people want to hear. that's what people need to hear in the world we're living in, in order that we give them hope. i think i heard something that i think is very important, when you said, chris, pope john paul ii opened people's hearts. pope benedict filled people's hearts. he was a theologian. so now, what i think we need is somehow who allows people to take what they have received and now use it in their lives for the good of others. >> monsignor, thank you for coming over. liz lev, thank you, they will be staying with us and we'll be talking to them later
religions, actual religions and i think that, look, there's ways that people can take days off for their special days. i think though that you're going to be looked at funny if you insist you need halloween off. i think it's insulting if you're a wiccan or a pagans and if you're an atheist or a pagans, if you're celebrating nature, an everyday experience. >> tucker: only a country too rich too long could be this frivolous and silly. the statements from the school, the information about the wiccan and pagans holidays, the statement says, has been in the guide since last fall. keep in mind this is not intended just for faculty, this is an informational guide for anyone across campus. letting you know. >> letting you know which days you can take. >> tucker: and christianity and comes down to-- >> i think that there's a rejection of tradition. i think this is again, not about elevating anyone else, it's about paganses and wiccans used for a political agenda to downgrade what's important to a majority of americans. i think that this is an anti-tradition action. i think paganses and
's an election, consisting of the cardinals, the religion, will meet in rome to decide on a new pope. that will happen before the end of march. again, there had been reports in the past couple of months that his health had been failing, that he had difficulty reading text, and he had in the past suggested if popes had problem in office with their health, that, in fact, that they should step down. he followed his own message. in fact, he will be stepping down less than eight years into his papacy. to show how historic this is, guys, the last time this happened was 600 years ago. that happened to be pope gregory in the year 1415. we just heard a press conference from vatican officials in the past ten minutes or so and they looked surprised. they said they got this information this morning. so secrecy is the name of the game in the vatican. benedict is his name. he is a german. he was a strong conservative. they called him the enforcer in the church prior to becoming a pope. the pope's rotweiler, referring to a dog, that's how he was referred to as well. the choice of ratzinger as pope
campaigned. >> steve did all day. >> i'm the right age. >> call him now? >> and the right religion. >> 42 years. you know, what's interesting to me about this is you're right. you know, benedict is mr. inside and his election, first of all, there were so many reasons why it was sort of doubtful, he was an unlikely choice. likely but unlikely in 2005. election was made possible by rules change that pope john paul ii put in place in 1996 and took the old super jorkt with two thirds of the cardinals to agree an they have as many ballots it took and he said after 30 ballots, a mere 30 ballots, majority rule wins and when somebody gets a majority, end the process because the majority hangs on and then win and probably enabled benedict to win in 2005. almost unanimous and four ballots and that's it. he did away with the rules change and so we have reverted the two thirds majority and it's the only way that pope john paul ii would have become the pope. there was sort of two candidates duking it out and he was the compromise choice and the unlikely, nobody thought him, polish guy with a chance. a
't strong enough. he defended muslims with the speech defending violent religion. among other gestures pope benedict made blue mosque. the biggest scandal he had to deal with were the widespread sandals of sex abuse against clergy. critics say he didn't do enough. formal apologies and probes in the u.s.s. ireland and elsewhere. he also had to deal with a but butler who stole documents alleging corruption in the vatican. he later pardoned him. benedict saw himself as a quiet intellectual. still he made 25 international trips. well received by crowds and tweeting spiritual messages. rolling platform to roll through st. peters. all of this leading up to momentous decision to step down when he felt he was no longer up for the job. >> pope benedict will not be involved in next month's con conclave of cardinals. he might have a silent vote. he had a big hand of choosing many of those cardinals. bill? >> greg palkot reporting live tonight from london. the pope's replacement could make history as well. experts tell us one of the top contenders is peter cardinal circleson from the country of gahanna
. patrick's. bill: with more now, fox news religion contributor, father jonathan morris is with us this morning. father, good morning to you. can you hear me? >> i can hear you fine. there you two. bill: never sounded better by the way. your initial reaction? what do you think? >> i was shocked as cardinal dolan mentioned. he was shocked. above all because the vatican doesn't like to set new precedent. this is, this is huge in the sense that the next pope, soon as he starts getting sick or elderly, people are going to start asking him very strongly, are you ready to resign? and the reason why, in the past the popes have been very reluctant to do so, they have recognized that the main job of a pope is not to be a manager but rather to protect the teachings of the church and the teachings of the bible. to pass on something to future generations and you don't need to be in perfect health to do that. on the other hand, it is obvious that pope benedict for a good long while, like the great reporting by lauren green just there, recognized that we're living in new times and there are new
who have different sexual orientation is a fundamental struggle for many religions and catholicism and judaism included. i am reminded of the myth of the owl of minerva but says it is flies at dusk, but flies to late to help anyone, and the question for the pope is he is the owl of m minerva, and that he was not ultimately able to conquer to the satisfaction of many people, and he has done something that myself have many issues with the pope, but he has done something very important that he is a sort of modern george washington here that he has stepped back as someone who has worked in politics and watched a lot of people who never know when to say when and have no humility, but that to me strikes me as a fundamentally humble act. >> and it shows a lot of spiritual freedom, too, and rare is the person who will relinquish power voluntarily these days. so it is interesting that jesus points to this both backwards and forward and as sister was saying that the jesus is always going out to the marginalized and if jesus were here today -- >> okay. here we go. >> father, that is a great w
that in the industrialized world there is it a lot of people who don't stee the relevance of the religion and he wants to reenergize that faith. he started the uro faith . amms wrote a book evangelical of catholicism and calling for the church to deepen people's faith. janet? >> all right. thank you very much for the update. can you tell us about what comes next in the process? this pope had specific outreach, but what about the next one. you mentioned there may be interest in focusing on somebody to represent the different geoh, graphy. the process seems so secretive. >> i tomit give you ideas who may be in the top. it is important to understand the selection by what the church needs. if you go to the criteria and the church needs to reenergize. cardinal ravizi for culture. he's also the president of a different pontiffical commissions. he's leading the papal lenten retreat it is an honor to lead that retreat. two others had had . both went on to be the pope . cardinal schoola who is italian branch. they make up 25 percent of the cardinals and they center a big voting block . you can see cardinal ole
. >> thank you. with us now is author david van beema, he spent more than a decade as the chief religion writer for "time" magazine and joins us now. david, good morning. >> good morning. >> this is the first pope to resign in six centuries. this is incredibly unusual. were you shocked when you heard the news? >> i was shocked at the timing. but i was not shocked he had resigned. he had already written from time to time it was appropriate for a pope to resign. >> he had written that in his 2010 book "light of the world," where if a pope realizes they are no longer physically able it would be their obligation to resign. what does this mean for his legacy? >> the papacy which is relatively short, the combination of that and the sex abuse scandal, probably means we'll see him in 50 years or something like that as the consolidation of the conservative movement of the papacy. he will be seen as the second part of the john paul ii papacy rather than as somebody who made a huge mark of his own, at least not in terms of the wider world. >> beyond those efforts, was he tryin
faith and religion in this country right now. can you tell us what you think the significance of this announcement is? it comes as a shock to us this morning. >> look, it's shocking to me, and i have covered this pope his entire pontificate, but when he was in the previous office he held as cardinal ratzinger, i had the only english interview with this pope at length before his election. it is curious to watch this unfo unfold. because at that time, cardinal ratzinger wanted to retire in 'the 90, '93, again in '96, up to '99. he declined each time, stopped himself and didn't retire, because of the example of the previous pope he told me in an interview, so to watch this -- i have to say, i'm taken attack by it as a journal and it's personally know itting the background and knowing his vision of wanting to reform the church and realizing he is side by side with john paul during his long convalescence, this is a pope that died before the world. taught the world how to die. a real shock to many catholics around the world and i think people of other faiths as well. and we'll see w
